Taking the #DenimStackChallenge with Cotton

I have a lot of denim but excited to be recycling the jeans I don’t wear any more. When I learned about Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™ denim recycling program I instantly knew I wanted to be a part. Plus, let’s be honest – when you take the time out to give, it always feels so good. 

So I recently purged my closet of all the extra clothes I have and had so many pairs of jeans (and even a few denim jackets) that I don’t wear anymore. Instead of tossing them, I decided to give them to Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™️ denim recycling program where they take used denim and turn it into housing insulation. Honestly, it’s pretty cool – I didn’t even know you could do something like that. As long as your denim is 90% cotton, they can recycle it! 

Here’s what’s so great about Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green™️ program, you can contribute your jeans at any of their participating retailers or ship in your used/worn denim for free by downloading a shipping label from Zappos for Good.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I’ve been encouraging my followers to take the #DenimStackChallenge. Simply make a stack of all your worn/used denim (make sure it’s at least 90% cotton!) you don’t wear anymore and then take a photo of it. Then, tag @discovercotton and use the #DenimStackChallenge hashtag to encourage your friends and followers to be a part of the challenge as well. The more people we can get to recycle through Cotton’s Blue Jeans Go Green program, the better!

Lately, I’ve been really trying my best to make day to day decisions that make the world greener and this is one of them. Not only is your closet cleaner, but the world is greener.
